    Assembly of Peter I

    Hello! I'm happy to present you MOC about russian history! Assembly is a ball of the nobility. Introduced by Peter the Great (emperor of Russia) as a form of meeting in higher society, following the European model. Reigned relaxed atmosphere: either meet or see anyone not required. Guests can play chess, checkers, but mostly amusement considered dances that were to bring together young people, to acquaint women with men. At first the dances were considered extremely immoral entertainment. The participants sat in a silent, shy of each other. All rested on the king, his will, the ability to organize a meeting, came to stir. And if not for Peter, the Assembly did not come into the tradition. In the evenings there was full equality: everyone could be invited to dance, even the empress and her daughters. Tsar Peter and empress Catherine. Prince Alexander Menshikov (statesman and highly appreciated associate and friend of Tsar Peter the Great). Piano player. Thanks for watching!

    32 gun frigate Concorde (French, ca.1760-1780)

    Hey folks, This creation was finished in 2012, among with the rest of my fleet of 8 vessels. 6 of these ships have been built in parallel using some exciting new techniques that I boldly labelled "nextgen" as it took build quality to a whole new level. Essential features are a innovative hull technique (that essentially show I could have done it without prefabs, retaining only the lower parts), complete accessible interior, and drastically improved sails and rigging. For some reasons I never posted any of these ships, so tonight I just took my smartphone and made a start. Concorde is a 32-gun Frigate which was modelled after French ships from roughly 1760-1780. The colour scheme, sail plan and size and gun count are roughly historically accurate. However, she still offers herself to all kinds of play and postures, because I believe a Lego creation should be good for more than just first looks. Enjoy!

    Modular Real Life Measuring Unit

    Hey guys, I'm a very new member. I have a quick question. I'm designing a model of the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall on Nov 9, 1989 the fall of the wall. I want to make my model in the scale of my other modular buildings. Does anyone know what the scale I should be looking at. It'll be a very large project that I'm starting. I believe I will start with Check Point Charlie as that is far less detailed. Basically I'm asking what real world measurements are in modular scale. Did I make sense? Thanks in advance. One foot in our world equals how many bricks?

    A chronology of Lego molds?

    Recently, I started selling some of my second hand lego at bricklink.com. I happened to have bought a batch of second hand lego with some old parts in it going back to the early 1970s or late 1960s. On BrickLink I noticed there is an interest in these older parts. For example the ones with 'Pat. pend.' (Patent pending. Lego applied for patents in different countries as of the late 1950s or earlier) inscribed on the inside, or the ones that have it erased with a small 'blob' (after the patents were granted). Also the location of the molding 'pip' is apparently telling for the age of the brick and hence of the value of it to Lego collectors. Such markings are of couse very handy to estimate the age of a brick. However, I noticed that there is a more detailed coding scheme in the bricks that seems to identify their respective molds. It consists of letters and numbers in various coding schemes and locations on the bricks. I'm sure you know what I mean. (but if not have a look here https://frankvanderm...-of-lego-molds/ Interestingly, while going through a batch of 'Pat. Pend.' 2x3 plates, I noticed a few funny mistakes in the molds. Apparently, the images are too big and have been removed. Check the above mentioned link to see one of them. It seems interesting to me to have a chronology of the different molds (and colors), at least for a number of often-used bricks. I tried to find it through Google but could not find anything. Does anyone know of such a chronology? Would you be interested in having access to it if it existed? Would you be interested in collecting the data?

    [Moc] Planning Room

    Hey everyone Here is my latest MOC made for GOH.. The Planning Room. Today, members discuss further exploration into unknown lands. A chandelier hangs from wooden supports, as well as the colours of Avalonia, dark and light green. Members discuss exploration A once great leader As always, all constructive criticism is welcome. Thanks, ~Pat
  6. Hey everyone Decided to build a section of a library for GOH. The first floor has some bookshelves, desk and a statue. Second floor is more of a "cat-walk", which displays shields, weapons and the colors of Avalonia. As always, both positive and negative criticism is welcome. Thanks all for reading/viewing. ~Pat
  7. Hey everyone After settling in the furthest west of Avalonia, these three set up a small house close to the cliff edge. The Avalonian colors fly near the entrance of the house (And as decoration at the bottom). Still new to the land, they take their time exploring different locations and plan to expand their settlement here. As always, all feedback is welcome! A closer look at the landscape and front of the building. Looking forward to posting more here in Guilds of Historica. Thanks all for your time! ~Pat
  8. Hey everyone It's been some time since my last upload here on EuroBrick. I finished this project around December, but only got around to taking pictures this week. This time, I decided to build an island that has never been explored, until now. As always, any feedback (both positive and negative) that are constructive are welcome. The Island build itself (Without the explorers). A closer look at the beach. The 2 bravest explorers make their way onto the island (1). The 2 bravest explorers make their way onto the island (2). Please excuse the sloppy masking, just installed Illustrator last night and I'm still getting used to it. Thanks for your time, ~Pat
  9. JangBricks just published a superb and really complete video history of the building blocks history. I’ve seen & heard of almost all of them before, except the one made in rubber. Interesting to see how this all came what LEGO is today. Here’s the link to the video

    MOC The Knight Museum

    I love museums, particularly the Museum of Civilization in Hull, Canada (now the Canadian Museum of History) and the Field Museum in Chicago. Having recently discovered collectible Lego Minifigures (I know a bit late, but better late than never), many of which have a historical theme and Lego putting out sets based on one of my favourite cartoons growing up, that being “Scooby Doo Where Are You”, I really wanted to create a Museum that incorporated all these things. After my kids got me the Tower Bridge for my birthday I had enough Lego to attempt my own creation. So here is my version of the Knight Museum. Help the Scooby Doo gang at the Knight Museum find clues and defeat a gang of villains trying to steal precious artifacts. The first episode in the original Scooby Doo cartoon series had the gang solving the Mystery of the Black Knight in the County Museum. A secret passage (behind a portrait of the Fat Lady that leads to the roof) and various hiding places allow the villains to hide out and plan and execute their nefarious plot. This lego creation tries to combine the fantasy of Scooby Doo with beauty and treasure of real life museums. This Museum has a dinosaur exhibit, and historical exhibits from Europe, Asia, the New World, and Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians. An observatory is located on the roof for star gazing. Under the stairs is a research area, a gem display and storage for unused display items. The Museum is built on two 32x32 stud base plates and is roughly double the size of a traditional modular building. Each layer and the roof can be removed as in normal modular buildings. Hope you like it. I had fun building it. Enjoy.

    [Moc] The WWII Museum

    Hello everyone :) I recently completed this MOC, which is, as the title says, a WWII museum. On the left side you can see a variety of helmets and weapons (Purchased from Brickmania). In the corner there is a mini diorama that represents the battle of the bulge with two German soldiers outfitted with Winter camouflage. Two British and American soldiers (manikins) can be seen on display at the right side of the MOC. As a center display, I decided to put a willy's jeep. Anything you like or don't like? Please let me know, I am all for constructive criticism :) Thank you, Luckypat

    Byzantium Church

    Hello from Russia! I'm happy to present you MOC about greek history (especially Greek War of Independence)! Greek revolutionist with banner. Thanks for watching!
  14. An amazing classic Lego collection from 1979 to the early 90's, complete sets in their original boxes with instructions. Album with descriptions here: http://imgur.com/a/zO6qm Purchased all at once (by me) from a single collector, this is by far the best example of classic Lego history I've ever seen in one place. I've photographed and researched the entire collection. If you notice any errors or know of additional information, I'd appreciate you telling me and will update the album accordingly. Enjoy!

    The City of Harfleur

    My build for Round 6 of The Tourney at MOCpages. I chose to build a section of the city Harfleur, with Henry V making his triumphant entry after the town's surrender. The city's walls, towers, and houses, have all sustained damage from the siege. The only buildings set square to the base are the red house, and two small sections of the wall. Both houses have full interiors and working doors. See all the details here: link Thanks for looking

    Northern Church

    I decided to continue viking's theme (after my Viking's House http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=99369&hl= ) As you know St. Olaf was the great Norway King that is regardered as a leader of Christianisation of Scandinavia
  17. I'd like your input on this set I made recently: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/95531 It's based on a very famous event in US history in 1869, when the rail networks of the East and West coasts were symbolically connected for the first time with the driving of a final golden railroad spike with a silver hammer. To the best of my knowledge, this would be the first non-fictional Wild West Lego train set. The 150th anniversary of this event is only a few years away, so I figure now is as good a time as ever for Lego to release something like this.
  18. Top of the morning to y'all... New published project in https://ideas.lego.com/projects/93125 for you to support should you want to :) Leave feedback and considerations regarding this MOC. Thanks! Cheers.

    Jeanne D'Arc

    Joan of Arc, nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans" (French: La Pucelle d'Orléans), is considered a heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. She was born to a peasant family at Domrémy in north-east France. Joan said she received visions of the Archangel Michael, Saint Margaret and Saint Catherine instructing her to support Charles VII and recover France from English domination late in the Hundred Years' War. The uncrowned King Charles VII sent Joan to the siege of Orléans as part of a relief mission. She gained prominence after the siege was lifted in only nine days. Several additional swift victories led to Charles VII's coronation at Reims. On 23 May 1430, she was captured at Compiègne by the allied English-Burgundian faction. She was later handed over to the English,and then put on trial by the pro-English Bishop of Beauvais Pierre Cauchon on a variety of charges. After Cauchon declared her guilty she was burned at the stake on 30 May 1431, dying at about nineteen years of age. (excerpt from wikipedia) images In this set is portrayed the escort provided to the dauphin to Orléans for his crowning. I've added some playability with the crashing tree - perfect for an english ambush. Let me know what you think Also this is posted in ideas.lego https://ideas.lego.com/projects/80187 and I'd appreciate your support

    The Blue and The Gray

    In preparation for our second annual Civil War Collaboration at Brickfair Virginia, here is an introductory build, a mostly symbolic representation of the struggle between the two sides. Depending on how you interpret the build, there are 7 characteristics included that are symbolic of the real conflict. Can you spot them? For more details, click on the picture. If you are coming to Brickfair Virginia in August, stop by the Civil War collaboration and say hello! Cheers, Gary
  25. A couple of days ago I realized that I had built very few builds for anything besides GoH, so I decided to make something a bit different. So here is a little scene, inspired by the minifigure (I have had him built for a while) and the English Nile Expedition for the relief of Khartoum: A shot from a lower angle: And a close up of the camel and driver: Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome
